The countdown will probably start on Wednesday October 9th, immediately after I submit my story to Zoetrope.

 

Also all of you have about 12 hours left, or whenever @Jason says submissions are closed.

Ah, well. Being busy didn't leave me time to go through the whole decade, so I didn't submit.

 

Also I seem to have lost what I did get.

 

IAC, Network was my #1. I think The Castle of Cagliostro would have ended up #2.

@Kalo Noticed you submitted a list in the thread but not via PM. I'd still be willing to accept your submission.
